Hello DHS Families, 

Hello Durham High School students and parents. Welcome back to school. The high school staff is looking forward to kicking off the 2022-23 school year.
High school is an exciting time and we here at Durham are committed to helping you realize your potential. We believe that academics are incredibly important as well as involvement in other programs. A few to keep in mind are:
  • Career Technical Classes (CTE) not only helps develop career skills but leadership and possible opportunities to compete at a local, regional and state level with other students.
  •  Music performance and Visual arts are important for aesthetics, critical thinking, and possible career opportunities.
  • Sports programs offer students the opportunity for teamwork, technical skill building, leadership, and the challenges of competition
  • Associated Student Body (ASB) provides students the opportunity to learn how the school works and be a part of the decision making process
  • Dual enrollment courses have the potential to give college credit and school credits
Please schedule an appointment with the counselor to inquire further.

Can you believe that the 2022-2023 school year is right around the corner? 

Below you'll find important information and upcoming events.
